Hah! That's great.
@ my GI appointment last wednesday, he had upped my Imuran dose (to help the RA and CD arthritis better and for the Remicade prep). And he mentioned that too!
"Yeah, dogs do very well on the drug." LOL.
I was thinking, if it's good enough for his dog, it's good enough for me!
Seriously, I treat my Pea (my cat) like gold. And when it comes to her health? I would put a second mortgage on my home, work the graveyard shift @ Dunkin' Donuts....anything.
Question for Susie:
OK, rheummy had me on 25mg Imuran (he was treating me like an elderly because I'm underweight), but GI disagreed and put me to the 50mg daily. Did you ever get VERY VERY pale/white or noticeable changes in skin color while on it? I mean, I'm pale to begin with, but since starting it....it's ghostly, and cold? Familiar? ... just wondering if it's common.
